Women’s Volleyball Cruises into the Second Round

In the first round of the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Tournament, the fifth-seeded Penn State team swept the MAAC-champ Siena Saints. Haleigh Washington led the way with six blocks and nine kills, while Micha Hancock tallied 33 assists en route to the 25-17, 25-10, 25-5 victory.

The match was the Nittany Lion’s 14th straight sweep and 31st win in 34 matches. Penn State never trailed in any of the three sets.

Hancock, already leading the nation with 1.02 aces per set, had another incredible night. She contributed to the big win with seven aces, bringing her season total to 116 — a new Big Ten single-season record.

Penn State recorded its 29th first round victory and 25th straight first round sweep. It was the seventh time this season that the team held its opponent to fewer than 40 points.

Before Penn State’s match, Dayton and American faced off at Rec Hall, where Dayton came away with a four-set win. Tomorrow night at 7:30, Dayton and Penn State will face off with the winner moving on to the third round.

The Dayton Flyers won their first-round matchup 25-22, 25-18, 23-25, 29-27 over the American University Eagles. Dayton, 30-5 on the year (13-1 in the Atlantic 10 Conference), only played one Big Ten team this season (a 3-0 loss to Nebraska).
